Yes, the custom one does have a custom intake. It's suppoed to be an "electronic feul injection intake". The rest of the engine is the same as the stock truck. It is a very accurate version of the late High Pressure/Low Pump 235, and is the only correct donor 6 cylinder for converting '55-'62 Chevrolets. With a few alterations, it can also be used as a '55-'63 261, which was used in Chevrolet 2 ton trucks '55-'62, Canadian Pontiacs (not sure of years), as well as a rare option in '61-'62 3/4 and 1 ton 2wd Chevrolet pickups, '61-'63 in 4x4s.
I was thinking of picking one up for the straight six engine, but it looks like the custom version has a customized intake manifold and a cone-shaped air cleaner, so I would probably pick the stock version.

Exhaust manifold is also different- it is set up for duals.
Is the custom intake manifold in the Custom kit the only engine part which is different from the Stock kit?

Are all the stock engine parts still found in the Custom kit?

I want to see it built!
The one I have will be built as a 4WD.
